Pro-Zionists Take Control of US Foreign Policy

The Neo-Conservatives as they are called mainly Pro-Zionists have seized control of our foreign policy, proof forthcoming.
Pro-Zionists Take Control of US Foreign Policy
By Pastor Michael Treis

In an article entitles "Group Urges Pro-Israel Leaders 'Silence on Iraq." Published in the Washington Post Nov, 27, 2002 a memo addressing the "controversy over Iraq" to American Jewish leaders and Israeli, the memo stated: If your goal is régime change, you must be much more careful with your language because of the potential backlash. You do not want Americans to believe that the war on Iraq is being waged to protect Israel rather than to protect America."
In another article written by Charles Krauthammer a very influential and prominent "Neo-Conservative" writing in Time on Feb. 17, 2003 announcing the purposed war in Iraq "is not just to disarm Saddam. It is to reform a whole part of the world... What the US needs in the Arab world is not an exit strategy but an entry strategy. Iraq is the beckoning door... (Naming the neo-conservatives war targets of the neo-cons) "Iran, Saudi Arabia, Syria and beyond."
In these two quotes by ardent neo-conservatives are very revealing to the fact Zionists and pro-Zionists forces within Washington are exerting forces with the powerful Israeli Lobby, if not outright seizing control from within, of all US foreign policy.
The dangers are real as with persons in place of power such as Richard Perle and William Kristol. Perle who has often been called the "Prince of Darkness" was once investigated on charges of espionage for Israel. These charges stemmed from a wiretap of the Israeli Embassy in Washington ordered by the National Security Council in 1970. It was found through these wiretaps that Richaed Perle was passing on classified information to an officer at the Israeli Embassy. Then CIA director Stanfield Turner went to Sen. Henry M. Jackson chairman of the Senate Armed Relation Committee and demanded Perle be fired immediately. Perle was Jackson's top aid and would go on to be assistant secretary of defense for international security policy during the Regan era, skirting charges through influence of the powerful Israel Lobby. Guess being Jewish doesn't hurt either. Perle became head of the Defense Policy Board under George "Dubya" Bush, and remained there until his resignation March 2004 amidst allegations of conflict of interest by personally benefiting on the just started war with Iraq. In an interesting note from The Sacramento Union June 29, 1986 Perle was introduced by British Labor Party leader Denis Healey during a debate as "the man in charge of World War III."
William Kristol another prominent Zionist neo-con son of Irving Kristol and Gertrude Himmelfarb a husband & wife writing team that are powerful Jewish writers self described as "ex-Trotskyites." (Trotsky you will remember as the man who took 300 Jews from the lower east side of New York along with $20 million in gold donated by the Rockefellers and Jacob Schiff, wealthy American bankers, to be the leaders along with Lenin in the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917.) Irving Kristol might well hailed as the "Godfather" of the neo-conservative movement. In Made in Texas: George W. Bush and the Southern Takeover of American Politics Author Michael Lind states well:
"Neo-conservatives were not traditional conservative Republicans. Most had been liberal or leftists Democrats; some had originally been Marxists. Many were Jewish and had broken with the Democratic left because of leftist hostility to Israel's occupation of Arab land after 1967 and the hostility of many Black Power militants to both Jewish-Americans and Israel. Ronald Reagan was the first Republican president that many neo-conservatives had voted for.
While the foreign policy of the traditional Republican establishment reflected the fear of international disorder of the business elite, neo-conservatives strategy reflected the crusading ideological fervor of former Wilsonian liberals [referring to former American President Woodrow Wilson who was a proponent of American interventionism abroad] and former Marxist revolutionaries, combined, in case of many Jewish neo-conservatives, with an emotional ethnic commitment to the well-being of Israel."
In remembrance of Woodrow Wilson I must add his comments of his "alter ego" Edward Mandel House of Austin, Texas. Colonel Edward Mandel House cabled President Wilson November 28, 1917 "it is exceedingly important that such criticism should be suppressed." He was commenting on the extreme negative press being put forward in the American press of the Bolshevik Revolution.
Colonel House founder of the Council on Foreign Relations, another Illuminati group, seeks also the goal of world government. House, in his book Philip Dru Administrator, stated he wished the establishment of "Socialism as dreamed of by Karl Marks." In this book house wrote he outlined communist/socialist Illuminati goals of a central bank, income tax, all of which is strait out of the Communist Manifesto.
President Wilson once said of House; "Mr. House is my second personality. He is my independent self. His thoughts and mine are one. If I were in his place, I would just do as he suggested." (Intimate Papers of Colonel House edited by Charles Seymour Vol. 1 p.114)
Here listed are a few of today's neo-conservatives leading the way to a leftist socialist (communist) tomorrow.
Gary Bauer: "Christian Right" advocate of Israel Lobby who shared a vacation condominium with William Kristol and close ties with his father Irving Kristol. Heavily involved in leadership of the Family Research Council.

William J. Bennett: Another staunch Kristol family patron, naming William Kristol to Chief of Staff of US Department of Education. Kristol's first high level government job. Bennett served as "drug czar" in President George H.W Bush administration, Secretary of Education under Ronald Reagan , chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and as co-director of Empower America, a Kirstol sponsored think tank.
Elliot Cohen: The Director of the Center for Strategic Education at the (Paul) Nitze School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) - lof which former deputy secretary of defense Paul Wolfwitz served as dean, prior to his return to the Defense Department- Cohen is the aurthor of a new book devoted to the subject of "Israel's security revolution."
Midge Decter: The wife of Council on Foreign Relations figure Norman Podhoretz (see below) and a widely-promoted media figure in here own right, Decter is the mother of John Podhoretz who has been a deputy editor of The Weekly Standard, of which William Kristol is editor and publisher.

Thomas Donnelly: The deputy director of William Kristol's Project for The New American Century, and former executive editor of The National Interest, a " neo-conservative" journal founded by Kristol's father, Irving Kristol. Donnelly is a veteran military correspondent who was trained at John Hopkins' University's SAIS, where (as noted previously) Paul Wolfowitz served as dean prior to returning to the Defense Department.

Hillel Fradkin: An outspoken Zionist who is a "resident fellow" in the American Enterprise Institute and an adjunct professor of government at Georgetown University. Fradkin is the Washington director of the Israeli-based Shalem Center which describes itself as a "research institute for Jewish and Israeli thought." Fradkin has also served as a vice president of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, a " conservative" foundation which has provided millions of dollars in funding to myriad pro-Israel (and anti-Arab and anti-Islamic groups and projects. Of course, it is no coincidence that, in earlier years, William Kristol had been associated with this foundation and continues to be a major plaer in its direct affairs.

Frank Gaffney: A major player in the Perle-Kristol sphere, Gaffney is the "hawkish" director of the Center for Security Policy-a Washington think tank known for what has been described as support for "extreme right-wing Israelt causes," and which includes Richard Perle on its board of advisors. Gaffney himself worked alongside Perle on the staff of Sen. Henry M. Jackson when Perle was active in establishing "Team B" and operating as an asset in place for Israel. Gaffney's board of directors also includes former American-Israel Public Affairs Committee director Morris Amitay, as well as former Navy Secretary John Lehman (see below). Gaffney's CSP receives funding from the Irving I Moskowitz Foundation which has supported real estate takeovers in Israel associated with Israel Prime Minister Ariel Sharon and from the aforementioned Kristol-influenced Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation. Gaffney specializes in training pro-Israel interns for insertion into public policy-making posts in government and providing pro-Israel-oriented propaganda for distribution in Republican and "conservative" circles. Gaffney is a widely-quoted columist who writes for the "neo-concretive" Washington Times newspaper.

Reuel Marc Gerecht: A former Middle Eastern specialist in the CIA's dectorate of operations ("black ops") division, Gerecht's writing is featured in Kristol-associated publications such as The Weekly Standard. He is a protégé of Richard Perle.

Michael Joyce: Little known to the general public, Joyce, yet another protégé of Irving Kristol, is a former school teacher who has risen to power through his involvement with a number of well-heeled foundations known for spondoring por-Israel causes, including the Olin Foundation-funded by chemical and munitions interests-which has sponsored anti-Islamic propaganda by writer Steven Emerson (a widely-cited "authority" on "Islamic Terrorism" and the (again aforementioned) Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation has been a major font of funding for Nation Affairs, Inc., the Kristol family-associated enterprise that publishes The National Interest and The Public Interest magazines.

Donald Kagan: A widely-published historian with an interest in the history of warfare and an advocate- like William Kristol- of flexing American military power worldwide, Kagen is a professor of classics and history at Yale University. (ED. Historical Note: Kagan was the title of the Khazar king)

Robert Kagan: The son of Donald Kagan, mentioned above, he is director of William Kristol's Project for the New American Century, a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, and also a contributing editoe of Kristol's Weekly Standard and writes a regular monthly column for the Washington Post where he consistently touts a staunch pro-Israel line and advocates U.S. meddling abroad. (Robert Kagan's brother, Fererick Kagan, has also emerged as a leading figure in the neo-conservative power network as well.)

Charles Krauthammer: A well-known television "talking head" and nationally-syndicated newspaper colomnist, Krauthammer, who wass trained as a psychiatrist, seems obsessed with devoting all his waking hours writing and talking about the need for the United States to devote its energies to preservation of Israel and the destruction of Israel's enemies. His venom for critics of Israel is perhaps unmatched.

John Lehman: A former National Security Council (NSC) advisor to then-Secretary of State Henry Kissinger, Lehman went on to serve as Navy Secretary during the Reagan administration and as deputy director of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency where he was closely with the intimate pro-Israel circles surrounding Paul Wolfowitz and Richard Perle. British journalist Claudia Wright notes that before he became Navy Secretary Lehman "was well-known in Israeli military circles, sat on the board of a Philadelphia think tank run by American supporters of Israel, and operated a highly profitable defense consulting company with business ties to Israeli arms industry." Along with Perle, and other Kristol family cronies previously mentioned, Lehamn is a member of the board of directors of advisors of the Center for Security Policy (See Frank Gaffney above).

Martin Peretz: The Stridently pro-Israel publisher of the "liberal" New Republic, Peretz declared in the Sept. 24 edition of his magazine that, in the wake of the terrorist attackes on 9-11 that "we are all Israelis now." Very much an ally of the neo-conservatives, Peretz has long been recognized as a key figure in a network of top-level publishers and media figures allied with one goal in mind: promoting the cause of Israel.

Norman Podhoretz: A Council on Foreign Relations member and a key figure in the influential New York chapter of the American Jewish Committee and its "liberal-tuned-conservative" Commentary magazine, Podhoretz is another "ex-Trotskyite" who emerged as one of the leaders of the pro-Israel neo-conservative crowd in association with Irving Kristol. His son. John Podhoretz, was a colleague of William Kristol as deputy editor of the Rupert Murdoch-financed Weekly Standard.

Stephen J. Solarz: A former longtime member of the House of Representatives where he was a major legislative legman for the interests of Israel, Solarz played a major role (in league with Paul Wolfowitz, then serving in the Reagan administration) in the overthrow of former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos when the Asian leader attempted to assert his nation's sovereignty.

Vin Weber: A former member of the House of Representatives where he was an energetic (non-Jewish) supporter of Israel, Weber was a co-founder of William Kristol's Empower America and in the 2000 presidential campaign was a top advisor to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). While in the House, Weber helped sabotage an effort to force a congressional investigation of Israel's terroristic 1967 attack on the U.S.S. Liberty which resulted in the murder of 34 American sailors and the maiming of 172 others. Weber is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

Marshall Wittmann: Although he is Jewish, Wittmann was the director of legislative affairs for the pro-Israel Christian Coalition. Wittmann's advocacy of "National Greatness Conservatism"-that is U.S. meddling overseas and the flexing of U.S. military might on Israel's behalf-has been promoted in the pages of William Kristol's Weekly Standard.

Paul Wolfowitz: Defense Secretary under Dubya, could be considered a pack leader of the neo-conservatives, and is a Zionist Jew. He is a protégé of Richard Perle who headed the Defense Policy Board.
While this is a representative overview of many of the people in the Perle-Kristol network, it is by no means complete. But it does illustrate the amazing power and influence Kristol and his associates-The High Priests of War- have assembled." [The High Priests of War p.35-39 My thanks to Michael Collins Piper for another fine work]
In understanding the complexities of international and national politics, things are not always what they seem. The Christian Coalition of which Marshall Wittmann was director of legislative affairs, is as pro- Israel as Wittmann who is Jewish. Zionism is defined as:
Zionism is a national and political movement that maintains the Jewish people are entitled to a national homeland. Formerly founded in 1897, Zionism eventually selected Palestine in 1917 as their home. Since 1948 Zionism's main aim has been the development, support and defense of the modern State of Israel. The term "Zionism" was coined in 1890 by Nathan Birnbaum.
Those Zionists and pro-Zionists within our government seek the United States to be international police ready defend Israel at all costs. The especially want for US to destroy or at least put under a police state masquerading as "democracy," all their enemies. Wanting Afghanistan, Iraq, Iran, Syria. Saudi Arabia, the United Arab Emirates and later all Muslim countries to be classified as "rogue states" to be dealt with under "The War On Terrorism."
The ominous events of 9-11 were the start of World War III. It may be taking off slow but it is going on. Those events are being proved more each day, to have been planned by powerful individuals within our government with no accountability. So we won't think about it so much, this World War is down played by the "neo-con" controlled media, except when it is to their advantage. As long as we get to go to work each day and come home to the latest "reality" show and a six-pack, life isn't so bad.
The Zionist belief of gaining control of the world and then the messiah will make his entrance, is their plan. They have found by the imposition of the idea that they, the Jews are Israel, and deserve the Middle East and control of the world to even agree with "fundamental Christian" belief. Of course "Christians" believe at that time Jesus Christ will reappear and the Jews will see their error and everything will be as it should be. WRONG!
Everything hinges on the Jews being Israel. Nothing could be further from the truth! Israel was divided after Solomon's death, millions of Israelites of the Northern Kingdom called "the house of Israel" went into Assyrian captivity. These 10 tribes of Israel were known as the "lost tribes." Why were they lost? Million and millions of the chosen of God, how could they just disappear? God tells us in Isaiah 62:2 "Thou shalt be called by a new name which the mouth of the Lord shall name." Hosea 2:17 reads: "they shall no more be remembered by their name." In Isaiah 65:15 God said to the enemies of Israel: "And ye shall leave your name for a curse unto My chosen: for the Lord GOD shall slay thee, and call his servants by another name."
Not only had Israel vanished to history but also she was blind to who she was. Isaiah 29:10 " for the Lord poured out upon the spirit of deep sleep, and hath closed your eyes: the prophets and rulers, the seers hath he covered." The New Testament also state likewise in Romans 11:7,8, & 10 : What then? Israel hath not obtained that which he seeketh for; but the election hath obtained it, and the rest were blinded. (8) (Accordingly as it was written, God hath given them the spirit of slumber, eye that they should not see, and ears that they should not hear;) unto this day. (10) Let their eyes be darkened, that they may not see, and bow down their back away.
So we see why Israel disappeared from history, but what names was Israel known by? Well this knowledge was hidden "like a sealed book" as spoken of back in Isaiah 29, and this knowledge remained sealed until about 100 years ago! The Assyrians kept records on clay cuneiform tablets. Many of these tablets were found in the excavation of the Assyrian Royal Library of Ashurbanipal, at Nineveh in 1850. Professor Leroy Waterman, of the University of Michigan, translation of these was published in 1930, but the relevance to Israel was over looked at the time. Tablets dated to around 707 B.C. contained the fate of Israel as they made their escape from the land of their captivity. It was these tablets that were the "missing links" to the identity of the "Lost Tribes of Israel."
In Assyria Israel was known as Omri & Khumri, as Sakka by the Persians, in Babylon by Gimiri, in Greece as Synthians, Germanus (Latin; genuine Synthians [German] ), by Romans as Dacians, Cimbri, Celts & Gauls, Cimmerians by the French, in Spain Iberians (Gaelic for Heb.), in Ireland as Iberes then called Hibernai or Scota, in Holland & Denmark by Ingaevones also known as Frisians, Chaunci, & Cimbri. Phoenician means red headed man. It is these that made up the Anglo-Saxon, Celtic, Germanic, Phoenician and other kindred people the Lost Tribes of Israel. (suggested reading Missing Links Discovered by E. Raymond Capt M.A., A.I.A.,F.S.A. SCOT. ISNB 0-934-15-6)
When you understand this, the fulfillment of the Abrahamic Covenants are more easily understood, as well as Mat. 10:5&6: These twelve Jesus sent forth , and commanded them, saying, Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not;(6) But rather go, rather to the lost tribes of Israel., Mat.15:24 : But he (Jesus) answered and said I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel. James 1:1 James a servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greetings., Ezekiel 36:24-27 : For I will take you from among the heathen, and gather you out of all countries, and will bring you into your own land.(25) Then I will sprinkle clean water upon you, and ye shall be clean; from all your filtiness, and from your Idols, will I cleanse you.(26) A new heart also will I give you, and a new spirit will I put within you: and I will take away the stony heart out of your flesh,I will give you an heart of flesh. (27) And I will put my spirit within you, and cause you to walk in my statutes, and ye shall keep my judgements, and do them (28) And ye shall dwell in the land that I gave your fathers; and ye shall be my people, and I will be your God.., not to mention (look up) Jer.3: 14 & 15, & Micah 4.
Many people feel the state of Israel in Palestine is what these talk about, but nothing could be further from the truth. History proves 95% of the people known as Jews, are descendants of the Khazars (Edom). The Khazars were a fierce Mongol tribe of Northern Russia that excepted the Jewish religion in 741 A.D., and adopting of the Babylonian Talmud. Rabbi Louis Finkelstein in his work, The Pharisee, called the Talmud " the heart blood of Judaism" . Then they became the mainstream of Judaism after migrating through Poland to Europe.
The Encyclopedia Biblica Volume 2, Col. 1187 says the Jews are part of Jewry. The scientist and historian Dr. David Davidson wrote: "Indeed the Edomites latter became completely absorbed in Jewry and under their aggressive intrusion the Jews became racially the medium of expression for the Edomite ideal for which Herod the Great had first given political formation. The Edomite intrusion into Judaism AT EVERY HISTORICAL POINT OF CONTACT is fully discussed in the volumes of Cambridge Ancient History. Even the fact that Edomites have at length become Jews was soon completely forgotten by the exponents of the Jewish tradition." The Jewish Encyclopedia edition of 1925 Vol.5 page 41 states "Edom is in modern Jewry"
According to three Jewish encyclopedias and Flavius Josephus, the entire Edomite nation was forced into converting to Judaism and became known as Judahites at the time of the high priest John Hyrcanus (Maccabaeus):
...in the days of John Hyrcanus (end of the second century B.C.E.) ... the Edomites became a section of the Jewish people. "Chazars," The Jewish Encyclopedia (New York, NY: Funk and Wagnalls Company, 1905) Volume IV, p. 3.

They were then incorporated with the Jewish nation...."Edom, Idumea," The Jewish Encyclopedia (New York & London: Funk and Wagnalls Company, 1904) Volume V, p. 41.

...from then on they constituted a part of the Jewish people, Herod [King of Judea] being one of their descendants. "EDOM (Idumea)," The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia (Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1977) p. 589.

...they submitted to the use of circumcision, and the rest of the Jewish ways of living; at which time ... they were hereafter no other than Jews. Flavius Josephus, "The Antiquities of the Jews," Josephus, (e-Sword Electronic Version 7.0.5) Book XIII, Chapter IX, Verse 1, p. 279.



By their own testimony, the vast majority of today's Jews are not racial Israelites or even Judahites. History reveals that most of today's Jews are not Israelites but rather Edomites because of forced conversion in the seventh and second centuries BC and voluntary conversion in the seventh century AD.
Are these the people John in Revelation 2:10 & 3:9 says they call themselves Jews and are not but the synagogue of satan? (suggested reading the 13th Tribe by Arthur Koestler; ISNB 0-394-40284-7, the International Jew by Henry Ford, the History of the World by Orson Wells), Iron Curtain Over America by former U.S. Intelligence Officer Col. John Beaty
Without the knowledge of who true Israel is, we as Christians can not hope to accurately understand the Bible. As it is Israel "to whom pertaineth the adoption, and the glory, and the covenants, and the giving of the law, and the service of God and the promises " we are told in Romans 9:4
Genesis 28:14 tells us: "And thy seed shall be as the dust of the earth, and thou shalt spread abroad to the west, and to the East, and to the north, and to the south: and in thee and in thy seed shall all the families of the earth be blessed."

The map below shows that is exactly the direction of Israel's travels.

We see that our Ever Living has told us truthfully, although through Israel's back sliding he has kept his promises! See also: Jeremiah 50:6, 17, Ezekiel .
In Ezekiel 34:11-16 we see the promise of re-gatheing: "For thus saith Yahweh; Behold, I, even will both search out my sheep, and seek them out.(12) As a shepherd seeketh out his flock in the day that he is among his sheep that are scattered; so will I seek out my sheep, and will deliver them out of all places where they have been scattered in the cloudy and dark day. (13) And I will bring them out from the people, and gather them out from the countries, and will bring them to their own land, and feed them upon the mountains of Israel by the Rivers and in all the inhabited places of the country.
(14) I will feed them in a good pasture, and upon the high mountains of Israel shall be their fold be: there they shall lie in a good fold, and in a fat pasture shall they feed upon the mountains of Israel. (15) I will feed my flock, and I will cause them to lie down saith the Lord. (16) I will seek that which is lost, and bring again that which was driven away, and will bind up that which was broken, and will strengthen that which was sick."
No other people than the House of Israel was called the Lord's sheep.
In Amos 9: 9 &15 we see God's promise for His people Israel: "For, lo, I will command, and I will sift the house of Israel among all the nations, like corn is sifted in a sieve, yet shall not the least grain fall upon the Earth. (15) And I will plant them upon their land which I have given them, saith the Yahweh thy God." Through Jeremiah Yahweh told Israel: "I will take you one of a city and two of a family and bring you to Zion; And I will give you pastors according to my heart, which shall feed you with knowledge and understanding." Jer. 3:14&15 See also: Psalms 147:19&20, Hosea 2:23, 1Peter 1:1&2, 2: 9&10, James 1:1.
My brethren in Yahshua Messiah that most know as Jesus Christ, know that God never broke his promise to his people Israel, for he is a covenant keeping God. Those who would say he has forsaken true Israel, make Him out to be a liar, and the truth is not in them. For he sent his disciples first to the "lost sheep" and it is they who brought His message to the world. In seeking to have freedom to worship God, 50 million Christians in one fifty year period, the largest migration in history , came to America, the new Zion, in fulfillment of the Scriptures.
So when we read Ezekiel 38 & 39 about the last war upon this earth. We can begin to realize that this is not written about that small country calling itself Israel in Palestine, as many ministers would have you believe. These Edomite Jews are NO kin to ancient Israel and have NO right to the land they claim. They are the largest TERRORIST nation on earth! Their unbridled terrorism against the Palestinians is nothing short of genocide, which WE support. In 1948 via an illegal UN directive the Palestinians' land was given to "Israel" and these Edomites came into Palestine backed by US and UN troops carrying US and Russian made weapons, and their butchery of Palestinians was and is still relentless.
You must also realize when reading Meshek or Meshech (spelling varies in different versions) is the oldest known name for Moscow! The land of Israel was to be a " land of un-walled villages ". The State of Israel has always been a land of walled villages and they continue to build new and bigger even to this day.
We are told in verse 14 " when My People Israel rest secure, will you not know it? and come from your home in the far north , -you- and many Peoples with you,-all of them riding on horses,-a great horde, and a numerous army? and you will come against My People Israel." The ones attacking are Gog & Magog the chief prince of Meshek (which is Moscow) & Thubal. They are riding horses, about 10 years ago Russia restarted their Horse Cavalry. It should be also noted it does not state the land of Israel but, "My PEOPLE Israel."
In Ezekiel 38:22 Yahweh will rain fire and brimstone as well as diseases and slaughter upon the many nations & hordes that attack his people so he manifest, magnify, and distinguish himself as the Ever Living God of Israel. We are told the people of the country shall be burning their bodies for 7 months.
The name of the town where Gog and his hordes are destroyed and buried will be called "Hamonah" which in Hebrew means Mob-town. In Obadiah 15-21 we are told Zion will be a safe refuge and that Jacob will be the fire & Joseph a flame and that Esau (who is Edom) shall be as stubble and ignited and consumed.
We are told in Daniel 7:21 that the little horn the, antichrist, would make war with the saints and defeat them. READ In Revelation 6: 10 here we find after the fifth seal is opened the saints previously murdered ask when they are to be avenged. They are told not until after the murder of their fellow servants. Doesn't sound like the saints will be "raptured." Rev. 20:4 tells of the beheading of those who would not take the mark of the beast Doesn't sound like these saints are going to be "raptured" either, so don't hold your breath for that.
My brothers and sisters the time that is about to come upon us will be our trying in fire Mat. 24:22 says of this time "that unless the days or shortened all flesh will be destroyed." In Rev 18:4 we are told to come out of Babylon" come out of her my people" and we are told it is the rich men that kill the just, in James 5. Don't worry my brethren in Christ Daniel 11:2 says that people that know Yahweh "shall be strong and do exploits" and Isaiah 54: 17 tells us the heritage of the servants of Yahweh is, that no weapon formed against us shall prevail, that is to say HIS servants. Chose well whom you will serve.
We are not to be part of the system of Babylon any more. We are to depend on our Heavenly Father Yahweh. We are to turn from sin confess them to Yahweh, asking forgiveness in the name of Yahshua Messiah and repent seeking the face of our Heavenly Father. Your Heavenly Father loves you and he wants that each and everyone to turn from sin and be with him forever. It is that simple. Give your life to your Heavenly Father Yahweh, the Ever Living God of Jacob, Israel and he will have mercy and save you.
